Summer Camp Fundraising Events

Summer camp provides children and young adults with important experiences for growth. Securing the funds for this wonderful opportunity is accomplished through summer camp fundraising. Helping them to become stronger through challenges, new adventures, and new friends is what drives a church, school or PTA to host winning summer camp fundraising campaigns.

Summer Camp FundraisingNew Heights Adventures for Teens will host their annual charity golf tournament this fall to raise funds for summer camp scholarships and equipment such as tents, bikes, back packs and rock climbing gear. The New Heights 8th Annual Golf Tournament website also includes an online, silent auction. This is an excellent way to increase the fundraising bottom line for a summer camp fundraising charity golf event. Last year their fundraising efforts provided $60,000 in scholarships to youth from low to moderate income families who would not otherwise have been able to participate in summer camp programs.

The First Presbyterian Church will host their 3rd annual Troop 420 Golf Tournament to raise funds for transportation to the Boy Scouts Summer Camp. “Transportation costs have always been a limiting factor on destinations and our hope is, by raising funds through this and other fun community events, the Scouts are able to have the experiences they deserve!” Their golf tournament website manages secure payments and registrations online, as well as advertising and selling sponsorship packages. With each year this summer camp fundraising event increases in popularity as donors create bonds during a fun day of golf and share in the goal of providing children with memorable learning experiences.

Summer Camp Fundraising

Another great summer camp fundraiser idea is seen by the example of two school fundraising campaigns with online auction websites that offered camp scholarships as auction items. This is nice way to include summer camp fundraisers in your overall funding objectives for your school. The Forest Edge Silent Auction exceeded their fundraising goal this spring in raising $8,208 to enrich the learning experiences of their children. The Lake Anne Elementary School Auction offered an auction item of two weeks of summer camp at Common Ground Child Care whose mission is to value every individual child and encourage emotional, social, physical, and cognitive development by providing a nurturing, engaging, and diverse environment which enhances natural curiosity and facilitates educational growth.
